Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas says, “Metal Hammer is proud to see another crusading Defenders Of The Faith line up take shape on the back of last year’s roaring success. We always knew we wanted a heavy lineup, but putting Lamb Of God’s red blooded riff-fest up against Dimmu Borgir’s black metal from darkest Norway? Brace yourselves.”
LAMB OF GOD are currently in the studio recording the follow-up to their widely acclaimed Sacrament record. The band are utilizing two studio webcams to post footage from the drum room and the mixing desk on their official website www.lamb-of-god.com. The as-yet-untitled album is planned for February 2009. Their revealing double-DVD Walk With Me In Hell, featuring over five hours of footage, is out now. LAMB OF GOD will tour the USA in December as special guests of METALLICA. Kirk Hammett (guitar, Metallica) told Kerrang! recently, “I fucking love Lamb Of God! I’ve been a fan of theirs for a few years now…it’ll be great to see them play some of these songs live.”
